DON'T overlook this show just because the previous night stands out more. Some very skilled folks teamed up to remaster this tape the best they could for a few GOOD REASONS, 'yall.
"Mumblin' bitchen' and-a waggin' his TAIL!"
-Another awesome, funky and psychedelic night at the Shrine!
-and WHERE do people get the idea that recording equipment was worse and worse the further you look back in time? Like the guy who wrote the review just below this one? The monster 8-track machine Healy used to record the Aug '68 Shrine shows was as good as anything the Dead used in the 90's. It was just analog, not digital. Just listen to Two From the Vault again and you'll see. It sounds as clear, dynamic and pristine as any electric band's live recording I've ever heard.

Recorded so long ago and sounds so clear considering the recording equipment of the day.

How they had the balls to take a stage they were already blown off of is beyond me.

All Killer, No Filler
Beautiful recording. One of my first tapes had a bunch of this set on it. That one got wore out or disappeared a long, long time ago!
Great versions of every song they play. Primo Pig era stuff. The Lovelight includes two of my favorite Jerry solos. The first one has a short section where he plays some beautifully distorted hammer-on phrases for a short bit. And he launches into the second solo with some great machine gun riffing. It's always been a mystery how Jerry could keep his sh t together and sing a song like Death Don't Have No Mercy at the same his guitar is splitting the fabric of the universe. Plus drugs. Good lord.
It's just bad there isn't more of this stuff. On the other hand, had the band gone down in a plane crash the next day they'd be no less revered for the golden nuggets they left behind up to this point. Even they never managed (or bothered) to capture the extremely weird energy you can hear on these 67 recordings. They just moved onto different pastures and laid waste to them as well.

Singular Show and Recording
It is difficult to describe just how good this is. The New Potato Caboose, Cryptical Reprise, and Alligator -->Caution are just an improvisational and psychedelic extravaganza.
It is like listening to The Beast being born, born as a 6'4" 260 lb. 18 year-old ready to wreak and tweak minds every which way.
Man I wish there was more stuff that survived this period, but at least we have one hell of a sample.
